2015 Outlook: Deep-league Only

Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs


After having no value in his 2013 rookie season, Wheaton saw his opportunity take a nice step forward in 2014. He finished with 53 catches for 644 yards with two TDs on 86 targets. Markus saw the second-most WR snaps on the team by a wide margin (730), but he ended up being the No. 58 wideout in PPR leagues. Wheaton caught more than five passes or saw at least 10 targets in a game only once. He was the fourth option in the Steelers' passing game behind Brown, Bell and tight end Heath Miller. I like his growth, but I do fear the development of Martavis Bryant and the addition of Sammie Coates. I don't see Wheaton having relevant fantasy value in any format due to his shortage of targets and low scoring ability. He will be a real tough player to manage from week to week. Markus is a 50-catch guy who will record fewer than five touchdowns this year.
